Join My Circle!

Your safe, free and private online peer support group for 13-25 year olds.

It can be tough to ask for help! My Circle lets you talk with others just like you. Share your thoughts, get helpful info, chat to others... you can even support others going through similar challenges.

What is My Circle?

No matter where you live in Australia, My Circle is your free platform to reach out to others going through the same things as you.

Run by qualified Kids Helpline Counsellors, our 4 week My Circle programs aim to support your wellbeing and manage any distress or worry exacerbated by current lockdown measures.

The info and guidance provided is based on research, so you know you'll be heading in the right direction. Counsellors help you learn more about the issues that concern you by occasionally posting threads, questions and activities as well as images and videos about a topic.

From there it's up to you what you want to say. You can even create your own threads to share your own thoughts and ideas! Our group facilitators are there to support you, and will always encourage safe, open and inclusive discussions about a range of topics.

Topics

Family Relationships & Conflict Circle

A place for safe, open and inclusive discussions about a range of topics in this area, including:

  • Understanding the different types of families and the kinds of conflict they may experience
  • Making sense of the different emotions and experiences they can have when faced with family conflict
  • Developing new skills for listening, communication, and working through family conflicts
  • Learning about how to stay resilient and how to cope when dealing with a family conflict

The facilitating Counsellors will post content that will help you and the other members of your Circle to discuss and better understand conflict in their own families and learn how to better manage and cope with them.

How do I join?

My Circle programs begin when we have enough members to start a group, so by helping yourself, you help others too!

Register your interest by filling out this form. You’ll be asked to choose a username – it needs to be something that doesn’t identify details about you (e.g. your name, school/uni, workplace, social accounts) so that you’ll stay anonymous to the other group members. 

If you aren’t sure whether My Circle is right for you then have a chat with a Kids Helpline Counsellor about it first. 

What happens then?

You’ll be contacted by the My Circle team with your login details when a new Circle is open.

We will add new members into the Circle daily for the first week. New members will not be added into a Circle beyond the end of the 2nd week so you will be able to participate for at least 3 weeks.

Are you 13-25? Register your interest now!
